In Ravishly: Patton Oswalt’s Engagement: What Should Grief Look Like? (And Who are We to Decide?)

My article on Oswalt engagement in Ravishly.

My first commissioned article!

For my non-Facebook subscribers:

Online magazine “Ravishly” asked me to write an article on the media reaction to Patton Oswalt’s engagement. It’s the first time that anyone’s asked me to write an article that I didn’t pitch to them first. I had a same day deadline. Whew!

So, it starts, “The rancor over Patton Oswalt’s engagement drives home the point, that only the grieving can decide how to grieve…” Coffee ready? Let’s read the rest of it here

So, when a celebrity talks about losing their spouse, why is it such a revelation? Everyone knows widowed people and most of us have known grief in some form? Why is grief as a part of life such a difficult topic? (Hey, I’d love shares on my article if you like it or know someone who might).
